SERIES: UCLA leads 81-27

UCLA is unranked in the AP Top 25 and the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll (Jan. 10). The Oregon Ducks (8-9, 1-4) are unranked in both polls, and like the Bruins, did not receive any votes in either poll.

This is the 109th meeting between UCLA and Oregon with the Bruins leading the series 81-27 (.750). UCLA is 32-20 (.615) all-time in Eugene, Ore. The Bruins have won nine of the last 12 games overall and won four of the last six in McArthur Court. However, Oregon swept the Bruins last season. The last seven games in Eugene have all been decided by nine points or less. The Ducks won 71-66 in overtime last year in Mac Court on Jan. 28, 2010. Tajuan Porter and Matt Humphrey scored 15 points each to lead the Ducks. Humphrey opened Oregon's scoring in overtime with two 3-pointers to put the Ducks ahead 61-57. E.J. Singler scored six points in the final 1:10 of overtime to put the game away. UCLA got double-doubles from Nikola Dragoviæ (19 points and 10 rebounds) and Tyler Honeycutt (13 points and 10 rebounds). Senior guard Michael Roll, who forced overtime when he hit a three-pointer with 10.7 seconds left to tie the game 55-55, ended the game with 16 points for the Bruins. UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland is 10-4 all-time against the Ducks and 4-3 at Oregon.

Junior guard Lazeric Jones has a ruptured tendon in his middle finger on his right hand. He injured it in the first half in the loss to Washington and was limited in the second half (played just seven minutes and didn't attempt a shot). He has started every game since, including scoring a game-high tying 13 points to go with three steals, three assists and two rebounds in the win at Oregon State (Jan. 13).

Gather your team, schoolmates, co-workers or just a group of friends for exciting UCLA Men's Basketball in historic Pauley Pavilion. Groups of 15 or more receive discounted tickets, block seating and recognition on the scoreboard during the game.
